Can I Get HIV From Someone Sneezing on Me or From Touching Someone's Used Tissue?

No. HIV is not passed on in sweat, Saliva, or tears. Some other things to know:

  1. Body fluids that contain the highest concentration of HIV are blood, semen, vaginal fluid, breast milk, and other fluids that contain blood.
  2. You can't catch it from casual contact like you can a cold or the flu.
  3. Holding hands or touching someone's skin won't cause you to get the virus.
  4. Sharing a drinking glass with someone does not spread the virus.
  5. Open mouth (French) kissing is very low risk for getting the virus unless there are open sores in the mouth or there is blood present.
